The new date has been set for the Tavares KAYAKATHON!! Yes it is on HALLOWEEN this year! Think awesome costumes to go along with your creative kayak decorations!! We are shifting our focus for this event to help support our community in the upcoming challenging times. It will be now more important than ever to support our local businesses!
Join us in a community paddle for charity! This is a pleasant paddle to benefit Camp Boggy Creek! The Tavares KAYAKATHON launches from 9AM-10AM on the shores of Lake Dora from beautiful Wooton park in Tavares, Florida and continues through the scenic Dora Canal onto Lake Eustis. The paddling fun continues on the Harris Chain of Lakes from Lake Eustis to the Dead River. There will be multiple stops on the water with local waterfront dine and drink specials!
The event continues after the return paddle to celebrate with more participating restaurants in the downtown waterfront area of Wooton Park! The total paddling distance is approximately 4 miles. Distance is optional depending on where you choose to stop.
